Remote applications

How do I runs Redhat 9 GUI applications that I have remotely installed from a FC3 workstation. I tried running qfaxreader, a multi-page color and monochrome TIFF and fax viewer for linux installed on a RH9 faxserver and got the error :
"qfaxreader: cannot connect to X server" ..

I could previously run it confortably before upgrading my workstation from RH9 to FC3.

Let me get this straight: you're sitting at a RH9 box, you want to run programs on an FC3 box, and display the GUI on the RH6 box. Correct?

Enable X forwarding on the ssh connection (ssh -X).
